Blue and Fuchsia

One of my favorite color combinations is blue and red.  While I am known to wear a red pump with just about everything, there is nothing I love more than pairing them with a navy top or purse.  Now that the weather is getting warmer, I gravitate to bolder, brighter hues.  Switching out red for fuchsia is one way to update my favorite combo for the spring/summer. 

blue and pink

One of the tricks of wearing two bold colors, is to keep everything else neutral.  One way I like doing this is adding beige and gold jewelry and accessories.  That is especially important in the case of this little blue dress and fuchsia pumps, where you are wearing color from head to toe.


Blue and Pink Shorts

Does this not scream, Island popping in the caribbean? In this case, when color blocking garments, you should make sure to wear a beige shoe as well.


Tee and Jeans
Since these skinnies are already toned down with a plain basic white tee and navy flats, there is no reason why you can't add just a slight hint of another color.  In this case, I'm using a peach bag since it's still pretty neutral but adds a bit more dimension in the color scheme. 


Pink and Pink and Blue

This is a slight take on the first look, flipping the blue and pink; however this time, I'm muting the pink in the dress and adding another shade with the bright clutch.  


Blue and Pink Jeans

I don't tend to like anything too match matchy and wouldn't normally match my top to my purse, but since both are dark shades of blue, I am making an exception here. I also think that with the dark trouser jeans, its creating an otherwise monochrome look and adding just a pop of color on the foot.  

Blazer and Pumps
I love effortless casual chic and one of my favorite looks are boyfriend jeans with pumps and a blazer.  Like with the skinnies above, since the blazer is dark and we are working with a simple plan white tank and jeans, I'm adding another pop of color with the yellow bag.  I am also keeping the jewelry a bit more understated and opting for silver over gold.  

So what do yo think?  Do you like the blue and fuchsia combo? What as your favorite look of the 6?

Favorite Etsy Finds

Disclaimer:  This is not a sponsored post.  I am not being compensation by Etsy or any of the shops mentioned.  All opinions expressed are my own.

I am obsessed with Etsy.  I have been shopping on the site for years.  Not only is it a great resource for unusual and rare items (which I love!) but it is also a great avenue for anyone with a talent or craft to sell their products online.  And above anything, I love supporting small/home businesses.  

I have been perusing Etsy on just about the daily basis lately.  I am constantly adding items to my favorites, but here are some of my favorites shops and products!

Items listed below - Left to Right, Top to Bottom

PrettyLittleThings - I love anything that glitters, and I also LOVE coffee, which is why I love these Starbucks Glitter Mugs so much!

ShopMCBL - I have mentioned this shop in the past as I have recently purchased one of her prints.  It is a relatively new shop, but everything is just gorgeous and I already have about 5 prints saved to my favorites including Designer Tote with Spring Blossoms

PearlsandPastries - I am not sure I would actually want to hide my clothes away in the closet if they were hung on these hangers but I am  pretty sure I need them anyway. ORIGINAL Pink Silver and Gold Sequin Hanger;  

RitzyMisfit - One of my very first Etsy purchases was a RitzyMisfit wax seal necklace and I still wear it.  Now that they come in gold, I may have to order another! Gold painted monogram Wax Seal necklace;

BeanBeanCase - Its no lie, I am obsessed with phone cases.  I am kind of on the hunt for a clear thin case, and think the Flower Rose Transparent iPhone Case will add just the right about of flare.

HometoHomeDecor - I love containers in general and mason jars are kind of the holy grail container for me. The love the different jars Megan has in her shop, especially the Mercury Glass Finish Mason Jars

HustleMama - More mason jars . . . I know!  I actually use the wide mouth jars as drinking glasses.  They are super durable and I was able to purchase some plastic reusable covers from Amazon so I can store any left over iced tea or coffee in the fridge.  These mugs from HustleMama are perfect to take any beverage on the go.  I especially love the Dashing Dots Tumbler Mug.  

ShopMugShot - I don't really think this needs any explanation . . . its gold, its glitter; Enough said! Champagne Gole Glitter MacBook Case;  

storiarts - I love scarves.  I also love when you kind of have to look closely at something to know what it is.  These seller use text from classic books to design scarves and other items.  I'm partial to the Pride and Prejudice Book Scarf because it was my favorite book in high school.

WhitneyEnglish - If you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen my Whitney English Day Designer a million times.  I am happy to report, the 2015 Day Designer is now available for preorder.

What are some of your favorite finds on Etsy?

Lia Sophia Product Review

Disclaimer:  Item was purchased by me using my own funds.  All options expressed are my own.

I have heard of Lia Sophia many times, but never purchased any of their products or even attended a trunk show, so when a friend of mine hosted an online show, I was eager to check out their products.  

I am a sucker for jewelry and always eager to add everyday, costume and classic pieces to my collection. It is usually difficult for me to pick out just one piece when shopping, but I was on vacation at the time so while I was very tempted, I limited myself to buying just one thing.  It took time to narrow it down, but I finally settled on the SoufflĂ© Earrings.

   
I was quite surprised when I received these earring.  While I loved them online, they were even more beautiful in person.  They are also not an everyday stud, as they are a pretty decent size at approximately .5 inches in diameter.  When I ordered them, I envisioned wearing them to dress up trouser jeans and a plain black tee and pumps and I think these are going to be perfect for that.  

While I am currently lusting over a  number of different Lia Sophia pieces, here are some of my favorites on my wish list.

(Left to Right, Top to Bottom)
Flamenco Earrings | Jacqueline Necklace  | City Lights Earrings
For You Bracelets | French Dot Earrings | Flicker Earrings
Class Act Earrings | Frond Necklace | Out on a Limb Bracelet

The SoufflĂ© Earrings retail for $34 and can be purchased through your personal Lia Sophia Advisor, or if you don't already have an advisor, you can contact Wendy whom I purchased from.
